Before she was Maid Marian, she was Matty.... Matty has been raised to dance well, embroider exquisitely, and marry nobly. But when Matty's mother is murdered before her very eyes and her father, a nobleman, is reduced to poverty, Matty's life changes. As the daughter of Nottingham's most famous falconer, she finds a new destiny in the hawks her father keeps. She begins to understand their thoughts and even speak their language. The beautiful merlin Marigold becomes Matty's closest winged companion and her fiercest ally. It is a treacherous time in England. The sheriff of Nottingham is rising to power, and a true king has been kidnapped. Determined to fight, Matty's friend Fynn becomes Robin Hood. As Maid Marian, Matty joins Fynn and his Merry Men, famously robbing from the rich to give to the poor. You thought that you knew the legend, but this is the untold story. Bestselling author Kathryn Lasky soars to magnificent new heights here, giving us a bold tale of bravery and romance.

Before they were Maid Marian and Robin Hood they were Matty and Fynn. Now they are fighting together against the sheriff of Nottingham to rescue the true king and help those in need.

An interesting book. It has some interesting information about hawking. It's a version of Robin Hood but from "maid marian" perspective. In this version she is a clever and tomboyish.

Loved the idea of Maid Marian and Robin Hood as kids, but all the bird stuff got a little strange. And the story telling wasn't stellar.

I think that I fell in love with this book as soon as I saw the girl flying a hawk on the cover. Falconry is intriguing to me. This is a wonderful story about Maid Marian, or "Matty". Robin Hood is also one of my favorite legends ever.
